The Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission and Distribution Company says plans are on course to liberate the power market to allow intensive power users to procure energy independently from regional competent producers. ZETDC Commercial Services Manager Engineer Gift Ndlovu said this during a public lecture at Manicaland State University of Applied Science recently; highlighting that this move is among measures aimed at addressing the ever-increasing demand for electricity in the country. Meanwhile, Zimbabwe Energy Regulatory Authority Consumer Services Manager Engineer Norbert Mataruse said there is need to establish more power stations to increase the country’s security of supply, as access to electricity in Zimbabwe currently stands at slightly above 40 %.
